Cool Blue Halo Live at Tribeca

My roommate bought this portable electronic media player the other day. It's very cool because it's really small, and plays Ogg Vorbis, my preferred format. Another cool feature is that it can record in realtime to MP3, which means, depending on the quality to which you set it, you can fit many hours of audio in its 256 megs of flash memory.

We put this theory to the test at Tribeca (located on Granville Street next to MEC) on Tuesday night when early 90's Haligonian band Cool Blue Halo re-united to play a show. The device was connected directly to the soundboard with a regular old 1/8" stereo cable and the recording began. After a bit of futzing with the sound with a wav editor, we were pleasantly surprised with the results of our efforts.
